Hendersonville Eye & Vision Exams: See Better Today!
Hendersonville Eye Care provides comprehensive vision and eye care exams for the entire family. Whether you need a quick vision check to confirm an existing prescription or a complete eye health evaluation to test for cataracts and glaucoma, our experienced vision team is here to help. Our eye exams services include more than just routine vision screenings. A comprehensive checkup is the best way to screen for common vision and eye health issues that could affect your ability to read, safely operate a motor vehicle, or even lead to long-term vision loss. In accordance with recommendations set forth by the American Optometric Association, our Hendersonville optometrists recommend annual or bi-annual eye exams, depending on your risk factors for certain health conditions and whether you currently wear glasses or contacts.
Comprehensive Eye Exams Test Vision & Check for Common Eye Health Conditions
In general, patients who wear prescription glasses or contacts should receive an annual eye exam. During this exam, our optometrist will check for the presence of refractive errors, such as nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism. Refractive errors are caused by curvature in the cornea and can be corrected with glasses, contact or LASIK surgery. Our exams will also check for vision conditions such as eye teaming problems, focusing problems (like presbyopia, which normally occurs with aging), strabismus (crossed or turned eyes), and amblyopia (a condition where one eye produces an image significantly different from the other).
Eye diseases such as glaucoma and macular degeneration often have no obvious warning symptoms during the early stages. In fact, you may naturally begin to compensate for this vision deterioration without even realizing it. Since these eye diseases can also lead to permanent vision loss, early detection is essential to protecting your vision. In general, the risk for cataracts, glaucoma and macular degeneration increases as you age. Depending on your risk factors, our Hendersonville optometrist may recommend an annual eye exam. Regular exams are important to preserving your vision for life.
Vision screenings, while useful, are not a substitute for a comprehensive eye and vision exam. Vision screenings are brief tests that may be performed by a school nurse, a pediatrician, or other health care provider. While a vision screening may indicate that you need to get your eyes checked, these screenings do not serve as a substitute for a comprehensive eye exam. A comprehensive eye exam performed by an optometrist or ophthalmologist includes carefully testing all aspects of your vision as well as an individualized treatment plan based on your specific vision needs.
